Step 1 draw the minion

Start with the circle at the top of the page. It doesn’t have to be flawless, it’s just the base for the minion’s head. If you want to draw a chubby character like Josh, draw an oval or a wider circle.

Step 2 draw the minion

Then draw two intersecting lines, a vertical line and a horizontal line. The bottom of the vertical line should protrude beyond the circle. The length of the vertical line determines the height of the minion. If you want to draw a tall minion like Tim, draw a larger line. The end result will look like a cross within a circle. This construction will help you draw the minion’s face.

Step 3 draw the minion

Draw two small circles at the top of the horizontal line, one on each side of the vertical line. These will be the outlines of our character’s eyes. If you want to draw a one-eyed minion like Stuart, just draw a big circle in the center.

Step 4 draw the minion

Under the eyes, draw an outline that looks like an inverted English letter D as a reference point for the minion’s mouth. Use the bottom of the main circle to position this figure correctly.

Step 5 draw the minion

Under the head, draw a figure in the shape of a large U, as an outline for the minion’s body. The ends of the U should touch the ends of the horizontal line.

Step 6 draw the minion

On either side of the body, draw two curved lines as guides for the minion’s arms. The line on the left should point up toward the head, and the other should point down along the torso. As the minion’s hands, draw a small circle at the end of each line. The short lines will be the base for his fingers.

Step 7 draw the minion

The dark circles in the center are the eyes of the Minion. The two outer merging circles are his thick glasses. Draw small squares on the left and right to represent the temples or straps of the glasses. The result should look like the picture.

Step 10 draw the minion

In each “glass” from the glasses, draw small circles that will become the pupils. As the pupils, inside these circles will be fat black dots. In the space between the contour of the pupil and the lens, draw tiny circles – these are the highlights in the eyes of the Minion. At the top and bottom draw his eyelids.

Step 11 draw the minion

Draw some curved lines at the top of the head with a break in the middle, using the big circle where it all started, as the base. This is the hair. You can draw the hair differently, depending on what kind of minion you’re drawing.

Step 13 draw the minion

Draw two elongated rectangles that follow the direction of the bottom of the main circle. These are the shoulder straps from the Minion’s overalls. At the end of each rectangle depict small circles – these are buttons. Draw the upper contour of the jumpsuit inside the U-shape.

Step 14 draw the minion

At this step we draw the bottom part of the jumpsuit. The waistband of the jumpsuit is just below the middle of the U-shape. The intersections of the waistline of the jumpsuit and the previously drawn front of the jumpsuit form the pockets. Inside the front we draw a logo, which is a rhombus inside which beech G. Finish the jumpsuit by drawing the pants, for which you use the small squares drawn earlier
